EmbraceRF in NYC is a new breakthrough facial contouring procedure that can address the lower third of the face, specifically the neck and jowls. It is a onetime procedure that combines two powerful technologies from industry leader InMode – FaceTite and FDA approved Morpheus8, a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD). This procedure is a great option for patients who have skin laxity in the lower face and neck with or without underlying fat concerns, and for those who may not opt for a facelift but want optimal outcomes.
FaceTite utilizes RFAL (Radiofrequency-assisted liposuction) to address excess fat deposits as well as skin laxity on the face and neck. In some cases, some of the fat in the face and neck area may need to be preserved to retain a youthful appearance. Depending on the quality of the skin, the aesthetic surgeon can combine EmbraceRF with Morpheus8 externally for remodeling the underlying fat tissues. With its depth of 4 mm and additional 1 mm heat signature, Morpheus8 allows the surgeon to remodel adipose (fat) tissue. Depending on the depth of the dermis in different parts of the face, the surgeon can preserve fat and tighten skin or remold the fat into the contours so as to improve definition of the jaw line, jowls and neck, while retaining the fullness necessary to maintain a youthful appearance. The procedure enables the surgeon to determine how much fat is removed, left behind or molded for precise sculpting of the face.
